Summary
"Professor John W. Harper, on a plane back to his wife and children and his course in English literature, finds himself washed ashore on a seemingly deserted island ... a native finally brings him coconuts, a child is friendly but he faces the mistrust of the abusive patriarch, Tombani. Gradually communications are established; he learns the language and is introduced to the many taboos, particularly sexual, of a primitive world chilling in its cruelty"--Kirkusreview.com
